If you have ever grown Shiitake in the past you will be amazed with the productivity of these new to NZ varieties. They will not only do well on traditional hardwood logs but also Straw, coffee grounds and sawdust/woodchip used in bag cultivation. They are all considered commercial varieties.

Wood Dowels are the easiest way to get started growing mushrooms. If you’re keen to test your local market by supplying local restaurants or cafes try the 10 log wood dowel kit. Check your local firewood sellers for logs if you don’t have access to hardwood logs. Most sell Gum which can be used to grow Shiitake quite successfully. You are looking for logs that were felled in the last few months and between 75 and 150mm in diameter.

Grain spawn in different sizes coming soon for people wanting to grow in substrate bags.

All prepared products leave my facility having been sterilised to 15 PSI for at least 1 full hour killing all pathogens, liquid or substrate. The only thing living in my cultures will be the mushroom mycelium.

You also need some kind of wax to paint over your inoculation points. You can use candle or bees wax, I sell Organic Soy Wax HERE.

If you wish to grow on Sawdust for either business or pleasure contact John at John Fairweather Specialty timber supplies.

I will be adding spawn later this month for people who feel confident growing on sawdust.

Please feel free to ask any questions. No question is too silly.
